I've had this pesky stuck pixel on my laptop display ever since I unboxed it. I contacted them about it and they need at least 5 pixel defects for the warranty to cover it, so I couldn't send it back. I've read pretty much everything on the internet about stuck pixels and nothing has worked so far. I've tried software, pressure, tapping, and the whole nine yards, yet nothing seems to fix it.

However, the one good thing I have going for this pixel is that it'll dim down after the display has been turned on for about 10 minutes. Then, I won't notice it at all unless I have a solid black background, and even then it's hard to pick out but the red dot is still visible.

Am I out of luck, or is there something I can do to make this go away for sure?
And yes, this is the same MSI GT80S Titan as all of my other problems. (Well, not actually GT80S Titan, but it's a knockoff device from CyberPower. Same specs and all except that somehow I can crank out 120Hz on the display. That has nothing to do with the stuck pixel, as it was present when I first turned on the laptop.)
